And left you to wither there.

Than Nora's neck is,—and her arrums too.
"The Rose Of Flora" by William Makepeace Thackeray
Rosy it brimmed in the twilight, redder and fairer than wine,
Cold in a grey stone hollow I saw it dimple and shine:
And of all that a man might dream and desire, then seemed it the best
To drink, and be no more thirsty, lie down and for ever rest.
"The Waters Of Oblivion" by Cicely Fox Smith

For the globular cluster X-ray sources in NGC1399 and NGC4472 there is a tendency to be redder than GCs in general (Angellini et al. 2001, and Kundu et al. 2002).
Optical Counterparts of X-Ray Point Sources Observed by CHANDRA in NGC5128: 20 New Globular Cluster X-Ray Sources
It should be noted here that while the radio detected SF systems are redder and bulgier than optically selected SF galaxies, they are still on average bluer and diskier than the overall population of galaxies.

Moreover, with the Salpeter IMF galaxies are on average redder than with the Scalo one.
The cosmic evolution of the galaxy luminosity density
The reddest possible color from an early-type SED at z = 1.2 is i′ − z ′ = 1.2 (SBM03) and our two new ob jects are redder than this at 95% confidence.

For more massive galaxies and/or redder bands the effect is only 0.1 - 0.05 mag as the effect of feedback is smaller and star formation happen mostly at higher redshifts.

According to the luminosity ratio in H band of Monnier et al. (2006), the secondary is redder that the primary and therefore seems to be surrounded by denser circumstellar matter than the secondary, which is consistent with our spectroscopic data.
